Eric Garcia Is Finally Back To Barcelona.
OFFICIAL: Barcelona have signed back Eric Garcia from Manchester City.
The 20-year-old defender was previously in Barcelona’s La Masia academy before making his move to England and is now returning home, a little like Gerard Pique did when he came back from Manchester United.
The Blaugrana will hope Garcia can be as impactful as Pique. Central defence is an area they’ve been looking to strengthen for some time now and the Spain international arrives to offer an alternative option at the back.
“A player with a great future ahead of him, he is a defender very much suited to Barcelona’s style of play,” the club said.
“Captain at every level during his time at La Masia, always with the No.3 on his back, Garcia grew up with Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano as his role models.”
Garcia’s deal runs until 2026 and his release clause is 400 million euros. He’ll be presented at the Camp Nou this Thursday at 14:30 CEST.
